The condition led to a business deal.

NASCAR racer Dale Earnhardt Jr. is known to have kosmemophobia — an irrational fear of jewelry.

But when he married Amy Reimann on New Year’s Eve 2016, he had to find a way around the phobia in order to wear a wedding ring. NESN reports that Earnhardt recently discussed his fear on his “Dale Jr. Download” podcast.

Earnhardt can’t stand being around metal jewelry. He’s said in the past that he finds it “creepy.”

He has a wooden ring, but he doesn’t always wear it because it could easily break. For everyday wear he sticks with something more durable. NESN reports that he and his wife “he and his wife Amy have a deal with a company that makes silicone rings.”

Earnhardt says, “I wear Qalo rings, which are like a rubber composite sort of material, and they’re very comfortable.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
